For those who think that Katrina has severed all relations with Salman Khan and his family, there is news. Recently she arranged a show of her latest hit ‘Raajneeti’ for Salman’s dad, the renowned scriptwriter Salim Khan and the entire family…minus Salman, who maintains his clean slate vis-à-vis Katrina’s work.
He has not seen a single film of hers.
After tweeting to the entire world that he would definitely like to see Raajneeti and raising Katrina’s hopes, that he’d finally watch one of her films, Salman stayed away from the special screening of Raajneeti while the rest of the family saw and enjoyed the film.
Director Prakash Jha confirms that Salim saw the film in a show arranged by Katrina. “Salim Saab was full of praise for Raajneeti .He specially praised the dialogues which coming from him was a great compliment. Earlier Salim Saab had said what he and Javed Akhtar Saab wrote as a cop’s story in Zanjeer was nowhere near the authenticity of my cop’s story, Gangaa Jal. He’s a generous man.”
Salim Khan’s generosity was also evident in the call he made to Katrina praising her mature and restrained performance in Raajneeti.
About arranging the special show of Raajneeti for Salman’s family after they’ve apparently split, Katrina sighed, “I wish all these speculations on my personal life would end. Salman’s family is the only family I’ve known in Mumbai. That can’t change. Of course I wanted Salim Saab to see Raajneeti for a very special reason. He has seen my struggle in Bollywood from the start. He’s very proud of me.”
